Commitment and quality are my key principles as a writer. I take the craft seriously and always strive to write informatively, clearly, and engagingly. I value well-researched and stylish writing that stands out. If you hire me as a writer, then I will bring these principles, aims and values to your project.
I am happy working for a wide range of clients, including individuals, charities, businesses, education providers and the public sector, and I will consider any serious project that fits with my principles and interests. Among the latter are:
- politics and current affairs;
- philosophy and psychology;
- education and educational policy;
- digital technology and culture;
- popular culture;
- film, music and the arts.
I have written on all of the above in the past. My previous writing has included:
- scholarly articles;
- essays and comment pieces;
- blog posts;
- brochure, marketing and informational copy;
- satirical and humorous writing.
I am comfortable adapting my tone to fit the needs of a project.
I do not take on projects that involve producing ‘click bait’ articles or churning out ‘filler’ content to impossible deadlines. Nor do I write on topics that go against my core beliefs or ethical principles.
In particular, please note that I do not participate in plagiarism (i.e. the attempt to pass off the ideas and language of another as one’s own). I expect due credit and acknowledgment for any original writing, although what form this should take is open to negotiation. The latter will include a willingness on my part usually to assign copyright to the client.
